Hey Leo thanks! I don't know how I couldn't find those but one of them is quite close to me. Thanks.

Edited: Nevermind. I somehow was able to find a actual taijustu while the thanx was appreciated Leo, I think I'd rather learn Taijustu. I have a question though. I really like taijustu, but want to learn ropedart. The school has weapon practices on sundays were they have kusari game, Hanbo, stuff like that. If I went to a kunia and chain class, think I could unofficially put that training towards ropedart? I know that they are different weapons, and ropedart is for kungfu, isn't the overall idea the same? Could I instead of using kungfu training, just use ninjustu for ropedart?

Saw your post and just had to say "hello".

As I've heard and read, it is common advice in learning weaponry to seek proper instruction from an experienced teacher, however when it comes to the rope dart, experienced teachers are not abundant. I will admit that it is much easier and more quick to pick up techniques from a teacher, but it is possible to learn the rope dart without one. Combine trial and error, with persistence and patience, and you'll succeed. To prevent injury, I advise using something other than a metal dart on the end of your rope. The rope dart is a weapon that you can never get tired of because the more you swing, the more you'll discover; you CAN create your own techniques, and your own style. The book and the DVD I put together are good resources to get you on your way. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Oh, thanks man! I really don't have any kungfu schools in my area that teach weapon training so if I really want to learn I think I'm just going to have to teach my self, and use books for reference like you said. Thanks for the feedback!

At least join up with the Taijutsu school if you can. The Sensei will probably be able to point you to training which will assist you with the rope dart if nothing else.

Hello, Everyone, I'm Jianju & this is my 1st post.

Buffalo, I must agree, ropedart is a very cool weapon. It is also a very advanced weapon. If I may offer you any advice:

Begin with weaponless training, preferably wushu, if you're most interested in this weapon. Quite possible that the local kungfu schools mentioned earlier will be able to help you focus on the steel whip, (jiujiebian or qijiebian.)

I think the best advice I can give you here is something someone else advised me of several years ago:

Take a length of supple rope & tie a big "monkey fist" knot in each end. Practice with this a lot. See, the chain weapons are extremely dangerous, & you'd be surprised how easy it is to literally crack your head open with one. Be careful out there.
